Photographer's Note

I took this picture durring my visit to Madina,it is Masjid al-Nabawi..
The Mosque of the Prophet Muhammad(PBUH,in Medina, is the second holiest mosque in Islam. It is the final resting place of the Prophet Muhammad(PBUH.The original mosque was built by the Prophet Muhammad. Subsequent Islamic rulers greatly expanded and decorated the mosque. The edifice was originally Muhammad's house; he settled there after his Hijrah (emigration) to Medina, later building a mosque on the grounds. He himself shared in the heavy work of construction. The original mosque was an open-air building. The basic plan of the building has been adopted in the building of other mosques throughout the world.
The mosque also served as a community center, a court, and a religious school. There was a raised platform for the people who taught the Qur'an.
